Summer Book Club

“So you’re the little lady who wrote the book that started this great war,”  Abraham Lincoln said when he met five-foot tall Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of  Uncle Tom’s Cabin.

First published in 1852, no book in American history molded public opinion like Uncle Tom’s Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly.  An international sensation, the novel set sales records for fiction and was translated into more than 60 languages.

What does it mean for a human being to be free?    Uncle Tom’s Cabin is one woman’s attempt to answer this question.  Join us this summer as we take a deeper look at this extraordinary book and how Stowe’s words changed the world.

We will meet this summer on four Tuesday evenings (June 25, July 9 & 23, and August 6) at 7:00 p.m. in the Church Parlor.  For more information, contact the Church Office.
